Wii Party U Gets a brand new Trailer Sooner than Launch

Posted on December 31, 2013 at 5:36 am

Mario Party has always been the go-to party game on Nintendo consoles ever for the reason that first game within the franchise appeared at the Nintendo 64. Since then, every Nintendo console has received a Mario Party game inside the first few years of its lifespan, but that’s all changing with the Wii U.

Later this month, Nintendo will release its first real party game for the Wii U with the appropriately titled Wii Party U. The sport will feature all of the crazy mini-games you’ve come to expect from the likes of Mario Party, but with the generic aesthetics of Nintendo’s Miis.

Even if it doesn’t have the aesthetics of a Mario Party game, it doesn’t matter so long as the sport is fun, right? Well, the newest trailer for Wii Party U doesn’t really sell the thrill factor up to it does the undeniable fact that it’s the 1st Wii U games since Nintendo Land which can get five people across the TV to play mini-games together. Unlike Nintendo Land, however, the games in Wii Party U are supposed to be played in rapid succession.

Wii Party U would be an exceptional game to get to your Wii U when you have plenty of friends. In case you don’t, it may well still be worth getting for the pack-in Wii Remote Plus in the event you don’t have that many. In that sense, Wii Party U may become the following Wii Play – minus the millions upon millions in sales numbers.

Wii Party U launches exclusively for the Wii U on October 25.

Here’s What A higher Generation Of NBA 2K14 Seems like

Posted on December 30, 2013 at 7:26 am

The next-generation is nearly upon us, and developers are finally beginning to show us just how much of a graphical leap we will expect with the PS4 and Xbox One. Some games haven’t exactly wowed us just yet while others really do embody what we’ve come to expect from next-gen machines. NBA 2K14 falls into the latter.

2K Sports shared the 1st trailer today for the subsequent-gen version of NBA 2K14 running on PS4 hardware. Briefly, it looks absolutely phenomenal. I’ve said before that racing games are often what developers use to teach what new hardware is able to, but you are able to put sports games into that category in addition.

Check it out:

For the past two years, the NBA 2K series has remain unchallenged as EA canceled its NBA Live reboot for 2 consecutive years in a row citing quality concerns. EA promises that NBA Live 14 would be a specific thing this year, and that it’ll be on next-gen consoles using EA’s new Ignite engine. We’ve yet to peer what it should appear to be yet, but I’m pretty confident that NBA 2K14 will remain the crown jewel of basketball games once more.

After all, it takes a unique team to render Anthony Davis’ unibrow so beautifully, and the 2K Sports team nailed it.

Infamous: Second Son Gets Limited, Collector’s Editions

Posted on December 29, 2013 at 2:09 pm

One of the main anticipated PS4 launch window titles is Sucker Punch’s Infamous: Second Son. The title, set after the events of Infamous 2, stars a brand new protagonist with the ability to govern fire. Now, the sport won’t be out until next year, but Sony is hoping you’ll run off to pre-order the sport today because it has just revealed Limited and Collector’s Editions for the title.

Sony announced today that every one pre-orders for Infamous: Second Son might be upgraded to the Limited Edition. This version of the sport will include a premium foil cover and a DLC expansion called Cole’s Legacy. The DLC will allow players to experience the events between Infamous 2 and Infamous: Second Son to find what really happened. Upon completion of the DLC, you’ll receive Cole’s jacket to apply in-game.

For individuals who are looking to spend a piece more on Infamous: Second Son, the Collector’s Edition could be just the item you will want. The set includes alternative cover artwork, a reproduction of Delsin’s beanie, a group of 8 pins from Delsin’s in-game vest, an official DUP patch, vinyl decals and an exclusive in-game vest. Oh, and don’t worry, this set also includes the exclusive pre-order Cole’s Legacy DLC.

Here’s what it seems like:

Infamous: Second Son Gets A Collectors Edition

You can pre-order the Limited and Collector’s Editions starting today, but Sony has yet to present a date or price for the sport. All we all know is that the Collector’s Edition may be in very short supply that you can desire to grab it now before it’s gone forever. Besides, you can’t put a value on a pleasing beanie like that.

UPDATE: Sony didn’t list a worth for the Collector’s Edition in its blog post, but Amazon has it listed for $80. It could be a placeholder price, however it sounds accurate to me.

Here’s How Character Creation Works Within the Elder Scrolls Online

Posted on December 28, 2013 at 10:25 am

Character creation is vital to The Elder Scrolls Online experience. That’s a minimum of what Zenimax Online Studios says concerning the upcoming MMO.

In the most recent trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online, the team shows off the nature creation tool that every one players will use once they first initiate the sport. Like most character creation systems, players might be ready to customize their character in often every way. As an instance, players might be in a position to meticulously refine just how fat or skinny they need their player character to be. You will want an Argonian with a lager belly? You bought it. seem like an anorexic fashion model? You are able to do that too.

The team also makes much ado in regards to the face customization engine. There are near limitless possibilities so let’s hope players actually take the trouble to craft a custom face. If not, The Elder Scrolls Online can result looking like a global packed with NPCs from Oblivion.

The Elder Scrolls Online is on schedule to launch at some point soon in Q1 2014 for PC, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One. The sport was recently featured as considered one of three PS4 titles in Sony’s first TV spot for its next-gen console.

Battlefield 4 Gets A Minute-Long TV Spot

Posted on December 27, 2013 at 6:59 am

Video game TV spots are rarely over 30 seconds long. Air time is super expensive in any case. That doesn’t matter to EA though because it wants its latest shooter, Battlefield 4, to finally beat Call of Duty this holiday season.

EA revealed its Battlefield 4 TV spot today, and it’s just a little different. Unlike Activision’s hilarious colonoscopy ad for Call of Duty: Ghosts, EA decided to collect Battlefield focus group testers to speak about their experience with the sport. It’s a refreshing tackle the online game ad because it specializes in what it’s want to actually play the sport rather than the same old approach to creating a film trailer.

If you wish your ads to be a touch more traditional, try out a number of the recent gameplay trailers for DICE’s latest shooter. As expected, it’s all very impressive.

Battlefield 4 launches October 29 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Will probably be out on November 15 for PS4 and November 22 for the Xbox One. The Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions shall be getting timed exclusive DLC.

PlayStation 4 Demo Kiosks Might Just Be Coming To a shop Near You

Posted on December 25, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Does anybody ever play games at demo kiosks anymore? Anytime I walk right into a GameStop, the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U demo kiosks just sit alone in a corner looking all mopey and sad. Well, Sony apparently still finds value in them.

Sony announced today that PS4 demo kiosks at the moment are shipping to retailers around the nation. You’ll discover the kiosks in Sony Style stores this week, but they’ll soon appear at Target, Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop and more as we inch ever in the direction of the PS4′s November 15 launch. Sony promises that there’ll be thousands of demo kiosks round the country before November 15 for gamers to take a look at out a few of the PS4′s retail and digital titles.

So, what games would be available at these demo kiosks? Sony says that Knack, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, FIFA 14, Contrast, Super Motherload and Pinball Arcade will all be playable. It really is important because it may very well be the primary time that an indie title have been on a retail demo kiosk, and it’s much more surprising that Sony choose an abstract game like Octodad to focus on the PS4 launch. I’m not complaining though as Octodad: Dadliest Catch is without doubt one of the most charming indie games to ever exist.

If it’s essential discover a PS4 demo kiosk near you, just hit up Sony’s friendly store locator. There’s probably not one near you simply yet (unless you reside near a Sony Style store), but there have to be no less than one within the coming weeks.

VICE And Ubisoft Team Up On Assassin’s Creed IV-Inspired Historical Documentary

Posted on December 24, 2013 at 8:02 am

VICE is famous for its brutal news documentaries that occur in the various most threatening places on the earth. In other words, they’re no stranger to the worst humanity has to provide. A number of the worst humans ever to exist were pirates, and that’s what led Ubisoft to partner with the publication to supply a documentary that explores the genuine history behind a few of the history’s most infamous pirates.

In the 1st episode, VICE looks into the lifetime of Charles Vane – a central character in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. While the sport will undoubtedly take some liberties together with his life, it’ll remain faithful to the indisputable fact that Vane was, for loss of a greater word, an asshole. He would typically cheat his men out in their rightful reward when arriving from a successful raid. Even worse, he would torture and kill the sailors and merchants aboard captured vessels even if they surrendered with no fight.

To learn more, you’re going to need to look at the primary episode of “Rum, Guns & Gallows:”

Episode 2, which delves into the history of Blackbeard, isn’t out yet, but you will see it first on VICE. Meanwhile, you may look at the trailer for the episode below:

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag shall be released on October 29 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. The computer version can be released on November 19, the PS4 version may be released on November 15 and the Xbox One version would be released on November 22.

Here’s a brand new Assassin’s Creed IV Trailer To Take Your Mind Off The Watch Dogs Delay

Posted on December 23, 2013 at 9:57 am

Did you hear? Ubisoft’s ambitious open-world title, Watch Dogs, was delayed until Spring 2014. The delay has definitely put a damper on many gamers’ next-gen plans, but hey, at the very least Ubisoft has another next-gen open-world game ready for the vacations.

Ubisoft released another Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag trailer that explores the tale behind the game’s central protagonist – Edward Kenway. If you’re expecting additional info in regards to the game’s plot, you’re going to be disappointed. The trailer only cares to spotlight Kenway’s early career as a pirate, after which his transformation into an assassin.

Like most story trailers, it doesn’t really discuss an important a part of the Assassin’s Creed titles – the gameplay. While the tale definitely looks interesting, you’re guaranteed to be more impressed by the many gameplay trailers which have been shared up to now. That’s where the franchise shines, and Black Flag appears to bring the franchise back into the great graces of fans after the disappointing Assassin’s Creed III.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag may be released on October 29 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. The computer version might be released on November 19, the PS4 version may be released on November 15 and the Xbox One version might be released on November 22.

A number of Sony’s Best PS3 Games Are Coming To The PS4

Posted on December 22, 2013 at 8:36 am

Over the lifetime of the PS3, Sony’s own studios have created lots of great digital content for the system. Developers like thatgamecompany specially have made Sony’s console where to get highly original games which may be classified as artworks. Now those games and a few others should be making their solution to Sony’s new console.

Sony Santa Monica announced today that the studio might be porting four of the simplest games currently available for the PS3 and Vita to the PS4. Those games are Flower, flOw, Escape Plan and Sound Shapes. Both Flower and Sound Shapes will launch with the PS4 on November 15, flOw will launch at the PS4 and PS Vita on November 19 and Escape Plan will hit the PS4 on November 29.

The main good thing about this upgrade shall be most apparent to games like Flower and Escape Plan. They won’t look any better per se, however the games will now run at 60FPS in 1080p.

So, what in case you already own these games? Sony is making them fully compatible with the cross buy system. As an example, you can find Flower already available to download to your PS4 and PS Vita on November 15 in the event you bought the sport when it originally hit the PS3 in 2009.

The unintended side effect of this announcement is that it opens the floodgates to what i really like to name “Super HD remakes.” In essence, i believe that the frenzy to remaster PS2-era games in HD this generation will carry over to the following with developers remastering current-gen era games at the PS4 and Xbox One at a whole 60 FPS and 1080p visuals.

Granted, I wouldn’t say no to seeing a number of this generation’s best looking, but perhaps technically lacking games, reborn at the PS4 and Xbox One. With the rise in power, some games that struggled to run on current gen systems will be buttery smooth. Let’s just hope it doesn’t become a reasonable thanks to milk more cash out of customers with an inferior product
